• Move Thunderbird Signature for Identity

    One difficulty in current versions of Thunderbird is that even if you have set the preference to move the signature line related to the quote, it will not be saved correctly. Luckily there is a way to move this manually. The only problem is that it is a…

  • An Error Occurred While Trying to Find Updates

    Much like the Windows Update Errors I mentioned previously, it seems that Firefox has similar problems. Unlike those from Windows Update, however, these at least return a somewhat-friendly message, which helps a bit. So instead of getting a cryptic hex number, you are given a message that reads…

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.7.0

    It's been a monstrous fifteen months since I last updated the Bloglines Toolkit. Frankly, there just isn't that much of a reason to do so. Unfortunately, the Bloglines Notifier API just hasn't changed that much. Ever. And since it hasn't, there just isn't that much to be done…

  • Firefox CPU Usage and Google Reader

    Ever since installing Firefox version 2, I've noticed a steady deterioration in my computer's performance, but I haven't been able to put my finger on it. Since installing the update, it's been even worse. For some reason, I decided to try and figure it out yesterday, and…

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.6.8

    I have updated the Bloglines Toolkit to version 1.6.8 and posted an updated archive. There are no new features available in this version, but there are some localization announcements to be made. This version includes a brand new localization for Catalan (ca-AD), and updated localizations for French (fr-FR)…

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.6.7

    I'm announcing one more update for the Bloglines Toolkit. This one should be the last for a while, and is mostly cosmetic, having to do largely with copyrights, licensing, other dates and such. Still, there is also some clean-up work in the code as well….

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.6.6

    Though this has probably been the busiest week for releases that the Toolkit has seen in quite a while, I'm going to release another new version. This one does not contain any new functionality – none whatsoever. It does, however, include a new pointer to the automatic updater….

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.6.5

    Well, that was one of the shortest version cycles in history. For those of you who have been using the Bloglines Toolkit for a while, probably not the fastest, but still, it was pretty quick….

  • Firefox 2 Released

    While Firefox 2 was actually released yesterday, it's still pretty decent news, because a lot of folks have been waiting for a while, and the improvements are decent. Thus far I'm not certain that I would say that it deserved a jump all the way to version 2…

  • Bloglines Toolkit 1.6.4

    With the (final) release of the new 2.0 version of the Firefox browser, I've updated the Bloglines Toolkit to a new version. If you're using the auto-update feature, you should be prompted when you install, or when you check if you've already installed….
